an1malcrackers I haven't heard the other songs yet, but I am the one who has been listening to Who Decides on Youtube hundreds of times in the last month. I love the early 90s vibes in the video, as well as the beautiful, meditative, melancholic, peace-inducing, sedative, swinging, melody.
Keep it up. Wish you were on Spotify, but I understand it's not as lucrative :) Favorite track: Who Decides.

Assume Fire 03:32
Assume fire It's a heartless place Bygones with big bombs and air cons And empty space It's a mindless case Bygones with beer bongs and sitcoms And lacking grace Assume fire Meaning what? Wall wall wall Break-down, build back up The kind tire Meaning what? Fall Fall Fall Ground down and cry For what’s left It's a sunken place, silence from Wallpapered violence And playing face It's a heady case, Victims of psyche, od, and strategy And saving face Assume fire Meaning what? Wall wall wall Break-down, build back up The kind tire Meaning what? Fall Fall Fall Ground down and cry For what’s left

Immensely I 04:57
Immensely I I once was a woman In my mother Under her beating drum Now I'm a baby boy No sense of myself Dressed in blue In a church song Crying…..crying mother Birthdays, schooldays, fire brigades I need to be hungry There's so much I don’t know I need to be thinking There's so much I don’t need to know I once was a woman In my mother, Under her lighting brain Now I’m a man-child With my memories To much sense of myself Dressed in blue in church song Crying...crying mother Birthdays, schooldays, fire brigades

Lady in a Paris Dress I am not grounds for mow I got my house and made it this home Where i live, In my head All by myself And some of us Are in better situations ...some of us (To Quote Boho Dance, Joni Mitchell) A camera pans, A cocktail hour behind a blind of potted palms And finds a lady in a Paris dress With runs in her nylons, With runs in her nylons….. And you were in the parking lot Subterranean by your own design.

G.I Wonder Funny how the bread of a lover Always seems to be the reason you go Truthful how the ones that you love most Always seems to be the problems you show Don’t pretend the mocker or miser, ever Knew the way to something unknown Doin just a little Eliza For approval of the man with the stone Time lives over misery You’ll see, I’ve tried to be someone else's lover To long Fascination for you is gone Don't compare the tricks of a jester to the Dirty little tricks of your own Two of us in this situation, still there's Only one of us who has grown Funny in the light of reflection you were Using me in search of your home Doin just a little protection For approval of the man with the stone Time rules over certainty You’ll see, I've tried to be someone else's lover To long Fascination for you is gone G. I Wonder

Nature/ Nurture Nature nurture warm remains, Cooling ember earthly brains, Teach the students quietly Reflect the rhythm society needs Nature nurture all i know, Keep the music Ebb the flow Teach the people, wake them slow Reflect the rhythm beats we know And love Swift and able we glide, Learning truth about mind, Nature nurture my time Caress the freedom in a bottle of wine Keep the spirit stable Keep the kindness able. Nature nurture my time Nature nurture time we have Keep the peace n make it last Teach the way and show the path Take the time but do it fast, do it fast Swift and able we glide, (ohohoh) Learning truth about mind, Nature nurture my time Caress the freedom in a bottle of wine Keep the spirit stable Keep the kindness able. Keep the spirit stable Keep the kindness able. Nature nurture my time

Who Decides 03:19
Who decides? Bending over knee, People talking over me so loud, Everywhere I turn Understanding leaving me out Oh who decides, What's right for my time Is good for my mind Who decides? Watching tv shows people with their fancy clothes so loud, Every channel turned, Understand leaving the crowd Oh who decides, What's right for my time Is good for my mind Who decides? Day or night, it doesn’t matter, Fight or flight, it’s a show, Wrong or right, it don’t matter, The gifts you got the gifts you throw away. Oh who decides, What's right for my time Is good for my mind Who decides? Hypnotizing me, big markets and cooperations goal.

Dr. Simone 05:24
Dr. Simone (Lyrics adapted from Spoken Word written by Taalam Acey) Mother hoped I would surpass, at least to the middle class But yet I'm still stuck on that same mentality And all those years of schooling, ain't even challenge me But when I graduated, life was right there To put a degree in my hands, and a foot on my chest And here I am, dressed in my pajamas About to run outside and rip the backbone out this fool Ain't got nothing to show for all those years of school But...bad credit and even worse decisions And I live in a neighborhood where people buy food on credit So they finance but they don't just take And they're making payments on food that they already ate And I’m scathing open the door like I’m about to break And I see my best friend with a gun in his hand And with his other hand, he takes a swig of liquor from a bottle of scotch AND ITS LIKE EVERYTHING STOP Chrous And we drive, and we drive, and we drive until we get to the part of town Where the American Dream is still alive And in my mind, I'm playing NINA SIMONE And I wonder if he knows that tens of millions of people in this world/ Are depressed but use alcohol and drugs to remain in denial And I wonder if he knows there's a suicidal tendency Hiding behind a smile
